This squid that was found at the public access on South Lake Union near Alexandria, Minn.

Squid mystery shows up on shore of Alexandria (Minn.) lake


ALEXANDRIA, Minn. -- It began as a mystery.

Last Friday afternoon, the Alexandria (Minn.) Echo Press received a call from a resident on South Union Lake with a weird tip: He came across what appeared to be a dead squid lying on the ground of the public access on South Union Lake, just a few feet from the water.

The newspaper checked it out and sure enough, there on the access was the carcass of a squid. It was only about a foot long but it had tentacles and suckers.
